As Cargo Theft Spikes, J. J. Keller Offers Free Security Seal Resource

Neenah, WI – Cargo theft rose 57% from 2022 to 2023, representing nearly $130 million in stolen goods (CargoNet). One common way many transporters use to deter theft and tampering is the use of security seals.

In response to this concerning rise in theft, J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. is offering a free resource outlining security seal best practices and tips for choosing the right seal for various types of cargo.

Security seals act as a deterrent to potential thieves by visibly indicating if a trailer or container has been tampered with. They are available in a variety of strengths and with different tamper-evident features.

“By implementing security seals and adhering to stringent security protocols, trucking companies can enhance trust among clients, mitigate risks, and uphold industry standards,” said Josh Lovan, industry business advisor at J. J. Keller & Associates, Inc. “Investing in security seals not only protects assets but also fosters a secure and resilient transportation infrastructure essential for commerce.”

J. J. Keller offers a wide selection of security seals in varying styles and strengths, including their newly enhanced proprietary Plastic Truck Seal. This seal was developed based on in-depth customer input to include the features most important to them:

  • patent-pending chain of custody feature that allows used seals to be chained together, so Less Than Truckload (LTL) carriers can retain all seals from their route
  • anti-rotation locking design for improved security
  • durable printing for improved readability and barcode scanning
  • one-piece design for easier recycling
  • two-point connection between the seals at the head and tail to keep them together in mattes of 10 when shipping and when removing from the shipping carton.
